Labour Markets and Income Distribution: Realignments in an Aging Europe

Underlying the aging of the European population — more than 20% Europeans are 65 years or older — there is a sustained realigning in the different countries’ labour markets as cohorts of retiring workers are being replaced by smaller and vastly different entering cohorts of new workers.

Using a state-of-the-art dynamic quantitative model of labour markets and their matching of skills (workers) to tasks (jobs), this project examines the general equilibrium impact of aging on the earnings of workers of different characteristics (age, education, gender, race, nationality, etc.), the interplay with automation and immigration flows, and the ultimate impact of inequality.
